Lace dresses are all the rage right now. Daughter has been longing for one…and I had some sheet lace in my big pile of junk.
But it is white lace and the dresses she dreams of are colored.
Having heard of dyeing, I decided it was worth a try. I hoped the lace was nylon, which takes dye better than polyester.
It looked hopeful in the dye bucket.
But, after rinsing, it faded to a sort of taupe color, not white, but not at all the rich chocolate brown we were hoping for.
So, now what do I do? Here are a few possibilities for lining….It might still be worth a try…Drat! It is disappointing, even though I sort of figured it would happen, it still isn’t what I wanted…The lighter fabric has a beautiful shimmer to it, but it would be very sophisticated for a 12-year old…On the other hand, it might have a Victorian look that could be very appealing….Can you tell that what I REALLY wish is for chocolate brown lace?
